Develop RAW images to create the photos imagined with shooting. Development processing software to maximize camera and lens capabilities, and to achieve photos with the ultimate in image quality that Nikon intended. This RAW development software, Capture NX-D, is our response to demands like this from photographers.
It offers functions specialized for the development and post-processing of RAW images with nimble and intuitive operation.
The application offers a wide variety of functions, including adjustment functions necessary for developing RAW images. Adjustment function floating palettes can even be positioned on a separate monitor.
Image processing utilizing the color reproduction technologies long cultivated by Nikon can be applied.
While the same level of processing available when working with RAW images is not possible, the application also offers the image adjustment functions necessary and sufficient for editing JPEG and TIFF images as well.
Just as with previous Nikon software applications, this application offers a number of display formats developed with consideration for flexible operation. With combination display, thumbnails can be displayed above, below, to the right, or to the left of the image area.
Display of just two or four images is also possible to compare images for easy selection of the one most desired.
In addition, display to compare a RAW image before and after adjustments have been applied is available.
Until now, Nikon has used a file format that saved adjustments directly to NEF and NRW files. However, adoption of a sidecar format that saves adjustments to a separate file preserves RAW files in their original, post-capture state as non-destructive files.
In addition, sidecar format makes it easy to simultaneously apply adjustments to multiple files.
